From the Guardian's twitter feed:


The Agence France-Presse (AFP) says its reporter described seeing a white van driving at high speed on to the Promenade des Anglais, which is by the beach in Nice, as people were leaving after the Bastille day celebration display.

“We saw people hit and bits of debris flying around,” he said, adding that the incident took place near the Hotel Negresco. Terrified pedestrians screamed as they fled the area. “It was absolute chaos,” he said.

A security cordon was established, closing off the central Place Massena by 11:30pm GMT, another AFP correspondent said.

Oh damn. It's literally like a scene out of Godzilla.

Extremism needs to end. This is supposed to be The Future.

Now that's a serious sort of attack. Anyone can get hold of a vehicle, and do a lot of damage. I wonder of this was a case of someone "doing their part" as some of the Muslim leaders have asked people to do.

60 dead now.

Reported by sky news.

Maybe hostages at the Meridian Hotel. Daily mail.

WTF?

Prayers sent.

The news crawl at the bottom of the BBC feed mentioned that shots had been fired at the crowd. This might be confusion, considering that police did shoot at the driver.

What's up at the Eiffel tower? There is a fire? Was it an attack?

Looks like a bit of a panic. French police say the smoke is because of the fireworks. There is also a building on fire across the river, but it does NOT look like terrorism.

This is not a multiculturalism failure. This is a result of western capitalist/imperialist foreign policy. This is a result of corporate-backed western forces invading countries to steal their resources, to put in puppet governments and to have routes to get resources out.

I haven't heard any bulletin about that on France 24.

The fact is Radical Islam is a clear and present danger and this will just get worse. This is because Islam isn't just a Religion it's a Government.

You have places in the Middle East that run their countries based on a Religion from the 6th Century. You can't continue to have young Arabs growing up who see the modern world as the enemy of Islam.

It's like when the Catholic Church was behind the Governments of Europe. It was chaos because Governments were trying to run their Governments based on the dictates of the Pope.

You have to do two things.

1st: You have to annihilate ISIS in brutal fashion. You have to make so brutal, people will be scared to join ISIS.

2nd: You have to meet with Saudi Arabia, Syria and other Middle Eastern Countries and you have to tell them they have to become more modern. There's too many technologies on the horizon that could kill 50,000 instead of 50 or 60 people at a time.

You either annihilate ISIS now in brutal fashion or this will just get worse.

Sadly, Obama is more worried about the American People and this fake issue of Islamaphobia than he's worried about radical Islam.

So if you take out ISIS, another group will form. You have to go to the root of the problem which is Governments in the Middle East running their Governments based on a 6th Century Religion in 2016.

MSN is running a clip of the truck going through part of the cloud:

I don't see the clip now. It is one of those vertical cell phone clips. I'm sure they will show it again.

More video.
